Helping Others Stay Warm

 

Barrie office staff completed a fundraising campaign supporting the David Busby Centre/Out of the Cold Program.

During the winter months between November and May, the David Busby Centre runs several different groups which include:

  • Central Intake for all emergency shelter referrals, which accommodates over-flow from full emergency shelters in Barrie
  • The ‘Housing First’ program that assists chronically and episodically homeless individuals and families in securing and maintaining housing
  • A weekday/weeknight drop-in program that provides services such as a healthy breakfast, a warming/cooling Centre, brief services and support, community referrals and basic needs (hot shower, clothing, toiletries, healthy food and snacks, etc.)
  • A Mobile Outreach Van that is on the road seven days a week distributing food, water, clothing and other supplies for up to 140 people a night

Thank you to everyone that participated in helping support our community and this great cause.

Employee-owned and dedicated to our people.
